We’ve already seen a trailer and TV spot for TNT’s new sci-fi drama series Falling Skies which has a two-hour premiere Sunday, June 19, at 9/8c. Now the cable network has unveiled another extended look at the series with a cool trailer/featurettes which gives us a much better idea of the story and the characters we’ll be introduced to this summer. This is the most impressive look at the series yet, and I’m definitely eager to check it out in a few months.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer/featurette.
Here’s the official synopsis for Falling Skies:
FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. The few remaining survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers engage in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery. FALLING SKIES is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. The survivors may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. The series combines stunning visual effects and personal human stories about triumph and survival in the most devastating circumstances.
Falling Skies stars Wyle as Tom Mason, a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. Bloodgood also stars as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the survivors. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT’s Into the West) plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver. And Roy plays Mason’s eldest son and fellow- fighter, Hal. FALLING SKIES comes to TNT from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg.
